Thin-layer chromatography in the determination of pesticide residues

Conference paper
Part of the Residue Reviews / Rückstands-Berichte book series (RECT, volume 6)


Chromatography, in its many forms, has provided the residue chemist with one of the most significant techniques for the separation and subsequent identification of pesticide residues. The growing need for general but systematic analytical procedures for the detection of several pesticides has been largely fulfilled by the introduction of chromatographic techniques.
